Significance of Teeth Cleaning Regardless of Price
A standard cleaning, done semi-annually, provides early detection of cavities, broken fillings and gum disease when they are easily treatable with the least expensive procedures, according to Jill Kring Carter, owner of The Parker Group, a consulting firm for dentists in Lancaster, Pa. The cost of a cleaning can be viewed as insurance to prevent higher costs down the road.
Regular Cleaning Ranges from £32 to £87
Dentists set their dental cleaning fees based on where their practice is, according to Carter. That means that fees can vary by region. Nevertheless, a range exists as a national average, and regional prices will most likely be within that range. The national average for a teeth cleaning typically ranges from £32 to £87.
Deep Cleaning Ranges from £260 to £1,040
Costs for cleaning increase when more than routine X-rays are needed, or if deeper cleaning is needed due to deep plaque or gum disease. These cleanings are often done one quadrant at a time, with local anesthetic. The average for this type of deep cleaning can range from £260 to £1,040.
